A heavily-recruited linebacker out of California is heading to Nebraska.
On Thursday, three-star linebacker Will Schweitzer announced his commitment to Nebraska. He held offers from two dozen programs. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound prospect made his announcement with a post on Twitter.
“Big thanks to all the coaches who recruited me. I appreciate your time, mentorship and confidence,” Schweitzer wrote. “Last but not least, I’d like to thank my friends and teammates. Y’all kept my head up and encouraged me to keep going – I love you.
“That being said, I’m excited to announce I’ll be pursuing my dreams at The University of Nebraska!!”
Schweitzer ranks as the No. 35 outside linebacker in this year’s cycle and the No. 529 overall prospect. He picked Nebraska over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Kansas State, Michigan State, TCU, Utah and others.
At Los Gatos High School in California, Schweitzer did a little bit of everything at the linebacker position. He piled up 130 tackles last year, including nine for loss. He also intercepted three passes.
With Schweitzer’s commitment, Nebraska is up to 10 members with its 2021 recruiting class. The Huskers sit at No. 33 in the national recruiting rankings and No. 9 in the B1G.
